Still on my homemade pudding kick. It’s so simple to do, I just have to experiment with flavours. Obviously, chocolate and peanut butter isn’t much of an experiment. It’s well-established fact that the two go together. But since I’ve never had peanut butter pudding (not even from a box mix!) I thought I’d give it a go.

Nothing says “peanut butter” like a crocus…. right? Ok, not really. But I’m still trying to figure out some food photography stuff, and introducing some “props.” Your thoughts on the flower? The colour scheme?

 

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Layered Puddings

Peanut butter pudding:

1/2 cup sugar

5 tsp cornstarch

1/8 tsp salt

1 3/4 cups whole milk (don’t use anythign other than whole milk!)

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup smooth, natural peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

In a saucepan, mix all the dry ingredients. Add milk and heavy whipping cream, and stir until the mixture boils. Let boil one minute, then add peanut butter. Return to a boil, and let boil one minute more. Remove from heat, and add vanilla extract. Let cool slightly.

Chocolate pudding:

6 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp cornstarch

2 tbsp cocoa powder

Pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups whole milk (again, only use whole milk)

1/2 cup whipping cream

4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped

1 tsp vanilla extract

Again, combine the dry ingredients in a saucepan. Add milk and heavy cream, and stir to a boil. Let boil one minute, then add chopped chocolate. Return to a boil, and boil for one minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool slightly.

Whipping cream

1 cup cold whipping cream

1 tbsp sugar (optional)

Whip the cream with the sugar until soft peaks form.

In a wine glass (or other glass container), fill 1/3 of the way with peanut butter pudding, 1/3 with chocolate pudding, and 1/3 with whipping cream. Or alternate this in any way you see fit for dramatic effect.

The peanut butter pudding can be overpowering, so try to use a little more chocolate pudding to the peanut butter pudding.

I promise the next post will not be about pudding. Enjoy!
